THE MOST pressing matter on my mind leading up to La Salle's Sweet 16 game on Thursday is how I am going to obtain a ticket. Not to the West Regional semifinal against Wichita State, but to the Flyers-Islanders matchup taking place in Philly on the same night. Let me explain. I'm a bit superstitious, and in my mind the only way for La Salle to win on Thursday, is for me to be in the building I've visited each day the Explorers have won an NCAA Tournament game this year - the Wells Fargo Center.

LOS ANGELES - The good doctor didn't mean to be contrary. Dr. John Giannini was not being obtuse, or ornery, or even particularly prickly the past 2 weeks, when he disputed the "Cinderella" tag affixed to his Explorers. His dispute, of course, was meant to legitimize La Salle in his own players' eyes. He's practically a sports psychologist, for goodness' sake. Don't let him mesmerize you with that soothing tone. La Salle was as Cinderella a story as any team, ever.

Filling in for injured halfback O'Shaan Allison, Zac Fernandez proved to be the X-factor for Malvern Prep in its nonleague triumph Friday night over La Salle. Fernandez, usually a slotback, carried 17 times for 94 yards and made an 11-yard touchdown catch as the Friars topped the Explorers, 21-12, at Franklin Field. Allison, a junior who rushed for 1,500 yards and 18 scores last season, sat out after suffering a shoulder injury in the previous week's 47-30 loss to South Jersey's St. Augustine Prep.

Tim Miller's unusual transition from a gung-ho football coach for 20 years to a gung-ho comedy hypnotist was painless - no sweat, no worries, he says. That's because the 46-year-old Limerick resident was an optimist long before he was a hypnotist. A strong man with a strong man's confidence in his booming voice, an ironclad handshake, and a self-deprecating grin, he charms strangers braving their first comedy hypnosis as adroitly as he inspired his overmatched football players to endure another losing season.

Reece Udinski played a huge role as North Penn ended its six-year, season-opening losing streak to La Salle. The senior quarterback completed 12 of 20 passes for 205 yards and four touchdowns as the quick-starting Knights downed the Explorers, 33-24, Friday night in a nonleague game at steamy Crawford Stadium. Due in large part to its strong beginnings against North Penn, La Salle arrived in Lansdale with a 7-1 advantage in the head-to-head series. This time, it was the Knights who came out of the gate with efficiency and purpose.

La Salle's outlook for this season significantly changed when Isaiah Jones, a dual-threat quarterback and talented defensive back, went down with a season-ending knee injury just before the start of training camp. "He was really poised to be a big threat," Explorers coach John Steinmetz said of the athletic junior. "We're going to miss him a lot. " With little time to get fully acclimated to his starting role, senior Tom LaMorte will be under center for La Salle at 7 p.m. Friday in the nonleague opener at North Penn.

LA SALLE'S Mount Rushmore is Tom Gola, Kenny Durrett, Michael Brooks and Lionel Simmons. Whenever La Salle plays a game at Gola Arena, the players can look up from their bench to see the retired jerseys, the players having combined for 15 points shy of 10,000. Gola's team won the 1954 national championship and lost in the championship game the next year. Durrett may very well have been the most talented player ever in the Big 5. Simmons left school as the third-leading scorer in Division I history.

High school football practice in Pennsylvania and South Jersey officially started Monday, with the sound of pads hitting pads in steamy conditions.

Lori King expected the pain. You don't swim for more than 21 hours in the open waters around Bermuda - all the way around, Elbow Beach to Elbow Beach - without aching shoulders, head winds exacting their toll, seemingly whatever direction she swam. A former La Salle University swimmer, Class of 1997, King felt she nailed her nutrition in the run-up to last month's swim. She was ready for the cold water. Still, 16 hours in, aiming for land points that seemed never to arrive - "Objects always appear closer than they are" - she eventually knew her right rotator cuff had slightly torn.

Former La Salle High School quarterback Kyle Shurmur is to be the clear-cut No. 1 quarterback at Vanderbilt this season. In a story by the Tennessean , coach Derek Mason made it clear: "I want to just say this: We have a clear-cut one and a clear-cut two," Mason said. "Kyle Shurmur is my clear-cut starter. " According to the Tennessean, "Shurmur's role as the No. 1 quarterback has been assumed since he started five of the last six games as a true freshman last season. And his place seemed almost cemented when Mason said, 'I believe Vanderbilt has found a quarterback in Kyle Shurmur,' following a season-finale loss to Tennessee, when the freshman passed for a career-high 209 yards and three TD passes - the most by any Vanderbilt quarterback in more than a year.
